In advance of next week’s release of a new album Amoroso with Analekta, the Cecilia String Quartet has released its first music video. The music is the unabashedly serious and intense third movement of Leos Janácek’s “Kreutzer Sonata” String Quartet No. 3.
Barry Shiffman, who connected me with the video, says that it was made possible by funding from the Banff International String Quartet Competition.
It’s fascinating to watch the camera work and how it is intimately allied with the music.
